Gronkowski has not practiced all week, but the situation is rather optimistic. Ian Rapoport suggested on NFL Network Friday that Gronkowski could potentially be back for next week’s match-up versus the New York Jets.
The Patriots take on the 49ers at 4:25 p.m. E.T. and are still 11.5-point favorites.
